It wasnít until I read that it produced significantly faster skin healing, reduced redness and inflammation. Overall, copper stimulates collagen production after mild skin injuries. To me that means a.k.a a peel. Ok, I was doing it all wrong. I should do it after I do a peel. So off to do a peel then. I wasnít supposed to use anything until peeling began. A peeling to me is overall good flaking, no big chunks of skin coming off. I began using it on day 2 of peeling. I woke up to find my face all puffy. It wasnít red just very very puffy. It took me 3 days to figure out it might be Neova copper cream and not my other cream. I stopped using it and my face went back to normal without making any difference in any of my fine lines or large ones. This wasn't the 1st peel I have ever had just the 1st time using the Neova with the peel. Then I was back to cruising around smartskincare.com looking for something like this and read this little thing about safety.
"About safety - overall, copper stimulates skin remodeling occurring in 2nd phase of wound healing when scar tissue is replaced by more normal collagen. This involves both stimulation of destruction of scar collagen and synthesis of more normal collagen. For most people, the net result is smoother skin. However, there are rare cases when individual reaction to copper is such that collagen degradation predominates, which may lead skin deterioration rather than improvement. This is rare but can happen. Therefore, if one considers trying copper peptides, it is best to test on one's arm for at least a couple of weeks before trying it on the face".
Maybe next time Iíll peel a spot on my arm to test with. No more copper for me.
